Why did the Fredonian Rebellion occur?
The Fredonian Rebellion occured when Edwards had trouble with the land because he couldn't kick the inhabitants that were living there off the land, he then led a small group of 15-30 armed settlers to Nacogdoches and raised a flag bearing the words "Independence, Liberty, and Justice." The Fredonian Rebellion collapsed after one year in 1827. Ref: My 7th Grade class this year (Pre-ap) :)
